Oh, this problem was solved years ago. ICANN was founded to bind all efforts
of gouvernments, private people, and orgranisations in a burocracy impossible to
understand nor to survice, with the simple goal to keep all those from
affecting the real work of the real root server operators. The funny part
is, that the root server operators (which does not exist as an organization)
appears to be an organisation within ICANN. But this is only just another
level of indirection and confusion. ICANN is very successful in doing their
(hidden) primary goal: Let the operators work.
